‘Breathe’ gains a stripped down sonic sister as CamelPhat release ‘Just Chill Mix’ of Cristoph collaborationCamelphat

CamelPhat and Cristoph‘s “Breathe” dresses down, to take a ruminative turn on former’s “Just Chill Mix.”

The melancholy that tinges featured vocalist, Jem Cooke‘s contribution on the original remains intact on CamelPhat’s alternate version of the titillating collaboration. The pace of “Breathe” lends a sense of urgency to Cooke’s pleading of the track’s lyrical hook, which CamelPhat temper in their latest mix. The comparatively slow, honeyed bpm of CamelPhat’s re-imagination of “Breathe” augments the haunting, ethereal quality of Cooke’s voice, as she languidly verbalizes the song’s lyrical narrative.

The downtempo orientation of CamelPhat’s “Just Chill Mix” foregrounds Cooke’s vocals, to focalize their soothing tone, without sacrificing any of the potency. An unimposing beat progression undergirds the number, to instill the namesake “chill” of the tune’s title.

Saturday Night Session 011:  EJ scores the most unconventional residency there is, and talks being the anonymous musical face of Formula EEJ Formula E

Few moments are more sacred than the reprieve Saturday night provides from the daily grind of school and work. Its importance is meant to be emphasized, and thus, a feature dedicated to “doing the night right” was born. Saturday Night Sessions are set around energizing mixes meant to get the party started. New or old, each episode has one cornerstone thing in similarity: they serve as the perfect backdrop for the weekend pregame.

Becoming a resident DJ is the goal for many looking to achieve a fruitful and lasting career in the insanity that is the music industry. While locations like Vegas and Ibiza are the known industry hotspots, and the goal for many looking to cement their brand as a world renowned performer, high profile residencies also exist in other forms, which DJ and Producer EJ knows all too well. EJ is currently the resident DJ for Formula E, the global electric car-racing league that makes event stops throughout the world.

Previously, EJ was a Ministry of Sound veteran, but with his Formula E residency, he has turned ‘anonymous’ and chooses to perform in a mask not dissimilar to the racing helmets of those competing around him. His anonymity is a new dynamic for the artist, who has spent his entire career performing with no disguise.

EJ speaks about reinventing himself as an anonymous producer, stating, “originally, I wanted to create a DJ persona that could grow with the Formula E brand when I first started working with them, and bring a new audience to the championship through my music and performances.” He continues, “It was a bit of fun to be anonymous. I have worked in the scene for quite some time with Ministry of Sound so wanted a bit of a fresh look.”

What might be one of the most interesting things about his Formula E residency is how he performs, which is varied and non-traditional compared to the club and festival circuit many electronic producers perform within.

EJ mentions, “I play to the race itself when the cars are on track, creating the atmosphere to the grand stand spectators.” He continues, “Then there is the gaming zone which is pretty cool, creating the music backdrop to fans and the drivers racing each other on the computer game. Finally, there are my main stage performances. It all depends what country you are playing in with what style you go with.”

EJ has released a 19 piece soundtrack that is set to take center stage at the global street racing championship. He has released it on Ashley Wallbridge and Gareth Emery‘s Garuda, and both of Garuda’s founding artists have tracks included within the compilation.

While the Formula E residency has consumed a substantial amount of the DJ’s time, this has not stopped him from pursuing his DJ and production career in the more traditional sense. When discussing what his plans are for the new year, EJ comments, “It’s fantastic playing at Formula E, but I want to be on the festival stages such as Tomorrowland and Ultra. Headlining one of them would be fucking unreal! Also would love to get a number one.”

EJ also plans to release a full length album before the end of the year, which certainly bolsters his plan to reach number one. His Saturday Night Session proves him more than worthy for the mainstage with its collection of hit tracks like Cristoph and CamelPhat‘s “Breathe” and his own originals. As EJ puts it, the mix is certain to get listeners ready for “A good old rave up!” and it’s the perfect hour to get a good night going.

_________________________________________________________________________
Why do you choose to produce/perform masked and anonymously?
Originally, I wanted to create a DJ persona that could grow with the Formula E brand when I first started working with them, and bring a new audience to the championship through my music and performances. It was a bit of fun to be anonymous. I have worked in the scene for quite some time with Ministry of Sound so wanted a bit of a fresh look. It’s not so anonymous now as I have been performing without the helmet on a few occasions and have also been in the press without it. The secret is out!

Can you tell us more information like, where are you from? What got you into music production and what inspired you to start producing trance music specifically?
I’m from London and still live here, but travel quite a lot. I love London. It will always be my home. I worked for Ministry of Sound for 10 years before working with Formula E, and have got to play at some incredible venues around the world. Before that though, I worked in Ibiza. It was Ibiza that really got me into music and DJing, however before living there, I was massively into the original trance scene. Although I have moved around genres through my career I have always still loved the energy of trance. Strictly though, I am not just trance. I play a lot of progressive house and even though my most recent productions have all be labelled trance, they kind of sit in the middle a little. I like to be able to move around between the genres. You will see a lot more of my progressive side in 2019.

You’re the resident DJ for Formula E, which is an unconventional yet very high profile gig. What is it like performing in that environment versus performing in a club environment? Do you have a preference?
Yeah of course it is very different. I have a few roles at Formula E when it comes to performances. I play to the race itself when the cars are on track, creating the atmosphere to the grand stand spectators. Then there is the gaming zone which is pretty cool, creating the music backdrop to fans and the drivers racing each other on the computer game. Finally, there are my main stage performances. It all depends what country you are playing in with what style you go with. Some are more commercial than others. With all of this you have to remember that essentially people are there for the racing not just the music, however I just played in Santiago and the crowd was awesome, actually coming to see me rather than just the racing. Clubs and festivals for now will always have the more dance music crowd, but it looks like this could be changing. I do love a fucking good club though!

Are you a fan of a particular Formula E team or driver?
Am I allowed to be biased? I’m always asked to be neutral, but I get along really well with Sam Bird from Virgin, Mitch Evans from Jaguar, and Antonio Felix da Costa from BMW. They are all good lads, and the teams are pretty cool. Sam’s at the top of the table at the moment though so let’s go with him!

Musically, what are some goals you currently have for yourself?
I really want to showcase my style of music and get it out there to the masses. It’s fantastic playing at Formula E, but I want to be on the festival stages such as Tomorrowland and Ultra. Headlining one of them would be fucking unreal! Also would love to get a number one. All my last releases have gone top 20 on the Beatport Trance chart, but wouldn’t it be cool if music swung back round again, and my music was in the main charts. That would be wicked! Some collabs with some sick singers would be great as well.

What can we expect from you in the new year?
Lots more music. I have a compilation out on 8th February called Formula E – The Soundtrack which is selection of tracks that you would expect to hear me play at a Formula E race. We have a Garuda night at Ministry of Sound in London on 1st March where I’ll be playing alongside Gareth Emery, Ashley Wallbridge, Kolonie and Nash. I have an artist album out some time before the end of the year, depending when its finished as I am also on tour with Formula E until July heading all over the globe to some fantastic cities.

What kind of a Saturday Night is your mix getting us ready for?
A good old rave up!

Elderbrook continues to build momentum after Grammy nomination with ‘Old Friend’ EP [Q+A]

Elderbrook continues to build momentum after Grammy nomination with ‘Old Friend’ EP [Q+A]ELDERBROOK Credit FIONA GARDEN

As the year comes to a close, London’s Alexander Kotz tops the list of artists who continue to prove their worth by cementing a unique sound and a distinctive voice in today’s oversaturated electronic music scene. Kotz, more popularly known as Elderbrook, had a meteoric ascension into popularity after his breakout collaboration with CamelPhat, “Cola,” scored both of the artists a Grammy nomination. The producer is taking this newfound popularity in stride and capitalizing on it with a new four-track EP titled Old Friend. The EP proves that Kotz is a far cry from a one-hit wonder, with each track seemingly strong enough to be its own standalone hit.

Kotz spoke with DA about Old Friend, and revealed that the EP shows his more electronic, upbeat side. “I wanted to release these songs as a body of work to show where I’ve been musically over the last year since the success of ‘Cola,’ ahead of next year when I plan to release my album.” While he did not divulge more details on his forthcoming album, he did give insight into how he measures his own success and how that relates to his future bodies of work. Kotz notes that although “Cola” scored him a Grammy nomination, his measurement of his own future success is going to be based on whether he releases music that he loves.

The EP contains four tracks, and each has its own distinctive flair. Title track “Old Friend,” which the producer cited as his proudest creation of the EP, has an eerily similar effect on the listener as the infectious “Cola.” With its enthralling vocals paired with an upbeat synth progression, it is seemingly impossible to not replay the song over and over again. Kotz has figured out the formula to create catchy releases, and “Old Friend” has the capacity to take over the radio airwaves like past hit releases. Another track of note is “Capricorn,” with its groovy backdrop set against vocal chants that keep the track moving.

Old Friend undoubtedly has the ability to appeal to everyone from techno fans to pop fans, which is consistent with the producer’s own description of his musical style. He comments that, “because I love all genres of music; country, electronic, indie rock to name a few – I like to think that my music takes a little bit from each. Obviously the sounds I make are predominantly electronic, but the vocals and vocal melodies are definitely more down the indie route.” Old Friend is a big end to an important year for Kotz, and the EP is out now via Big Beat Records.


Your recent collaboration with Camelphat scored a Grammy nomination. Is this now a bar that you are aspiring for with new releases and perhaps a release on this EP? Or are you happy using that momentum to continue to build?

The collaboration with Camelphat did better than I could ever have expected, and I’d be lying if I said I wouldn’t want that kind of success again in the future. However, since the release of “Cola,” I found myself considering where my music was going to end up as a result. After a while, though, I realized that when putting music out there again, all that matters is releasing music that I truly love. Music that represents where I am as an artist right now. As long as I love the music, reaching certain heights or comparing myself to anything or anyone else seems irrelevant.

Do you have a favorite track off of the EP?

I love them all, but I’m really proud of “Old Friend.” It’s different to what I’ve done in the past and that’s exciting! “Bird Song” is another one I love. It was amazing to work with TEED on that one because I’m a big fan and have been for years. For us to have written a song together definitely means a lot to me personally.

This year was your first tour of the US. What did you think?

It was amazing. When I was younger I always pictured where my music career would take me. I had always imagined myself in the US, touring and driving across the country. To think that I’ve now done that is surreal, and I can’t wait to get back out there again.

How would you characterize your musical style?

This is a difficult one for me because I love all genres of music; country, electronic, indie rock to name a few. I like to think that my music takes a little bit from each. Obviously the sounds I make are predominantly electronic, but the vocals and vocal melodies are definitely more down the indie route.

What were some of your influences for this EP?

I’ve always been really influenced by people like Bonobo, Hot Chip, Jungle, music like that. With this EP I definitely wanted to show my more electronic side. However, I’ve spent a lot of time in the last year finding new sounds that I’ll be exploring next year with my album.

Cristoph and CamelPhat ‘Breathe’ their long-awaited collaboration into existence

This post was originally published on this site

Cristoph and CamelPhat ‘Breathe’ their long-awaited collaboration into existenceCamelphat Christoph Breathe 1

As if to the mounting majesty of one of his progressive house tracks, in the past year Newcastle’s Cristoph has blossomed into a worldwide reckoning under mentor, Eric Prydz‘s watchful eye. Both Cristoph and CamelPhat, the Grammy nominees and creators of deific dance track, “Cola,” spent the better part of the summer showing love for Prydz as supporting acts at his often sold-out Hï Ibiza performances. Now, the two supporters are taking their talents center stage for what is a natural progression of their time in close Ibizan quarters. The result: an epic dance music lovechild, “Breathe,” through Pryda Presents, fittingly enough.

“Breathe” begins under the guise of plaintive instrumentals and ethereal, desirous female vocals from resplendent dance floor songstress, Jem Cooke. The track then employs the sonic equivalent of ripping the floor from underneath the listener with its bellowing bass line and unfettered chord progressions. Like a spectral presence with the best of intentions, the track leaves listeners hard-pressed to resist reporting to the nearest dance-friendly surface once “Breathe” gets hold.

Each week, New Music Friday sweeps through with torrential force, showering streaming platforms with immeasurable amounts of new tunes. Just like Dancing Astronaut rounds up 25 of the biggest songs of the week for the Hot 25 Spotify playlist each New Music Friday, Lunar Lunes serves as a landing pad for SoundCloud users who want a whole new dose of tunes to kick off the work week.

Three years in the making, KOAN Sound have unveiled a single from their forthcoming debut album, Polychrome. Also making a comeback is Haywyre, who’s released his first single in two years: the disco-infused “Tell Me.” Luttrell returns to Anjunadeep for “Out of Me,” a mystical venture that propels the listener deep into outer space. Dubstep powerhouses Teminite, Chime and PsoGnar have teamed up for a dynamic single, “Monster,” which showcases all three artists’ skillful wobble-crafting abilities, along with PsoGnar’s vocals. Also in the dubstep realm, Doctor P returns with his fourth release of the year, “Something To Believe In.” Xavi’s created a clever take on Porter Robinson‘s notable “Sea of Voices,” and Nitti Gritti molds his own bass-heavy version of Dillon Francis‘ “White Boi.”

The selection is updated every Lunes (Monday).

Good Morning Mix: Camelphat take dark tech house jaunt at Creamfields UKCamelphat Rolling Stone 1

“Cola” supplants morning coffee when Camelphat come through for a Good Morning Mix.

A near one and a half hour effort, Camelphat’s recent Creamfields UK set douses tech house in dark tones. The electronic duo mix a series of moody selections that delve into deeper territory, and once there, continuously flow forth at a lower pitch. Looping vocal overlays guide the set’s consistent, shuffling rhythm, while conservative hits of bass interspersed among the cuts further grounds the showing.
